"My bird is 25 years old. With some swabs he found a infection in the lower part of her and so I took hole a antibiotic and she has responded wonderfully to it. She had not eaten for a day and was tired and sleeping and only drinking but by the next morning shortly after her 2nd dose she was eating and looking better. Today Saturday only two days into her antibiotic she’s almost back to normal she’s eating and chirping and walking around. I can tell she’s napping a little extra because of recovering but she’s fully eating a lot and looks great and her eyes are fully open. She’s a very active chirpy bird at age 25 so in a few more days she’ll be running back and fourth chirping away. "

"I could not be happier with all of my experiences with DG Animal Hospital. Bug has seen Dr. Max and Dr. Bob. Both were very thorough and caring in helping to figure out what was causing Bug to throw up so often. Dr. Bob suggested we try changing Bug's diet to Hill's z/d diet. Since I changed his diet, he rarely throws up and he has gained over a pound. I tried for a few years to figure out what was wrong with him at the last Vet practice, and they would just run tests and say he was fine. In three months after our first visit, you have figured it out! Last week I ran out of Hill's z/d dry and your office hasn't been able to get it. With Bug finally feeling well, I didn't want to risk a set back, or upsetting his tummy. Every person I have talked to on the phone has been so friendly, kind and helpful. Tammy helped me set up an order on Hill's to Home and place an order. As it turns out, they were back-ordered, too, which I didn't find out until after the weekend. I later tracked some down at PetSmart, but needed a prescription, so I called the office again. Liz helped me get a prescription and I was able to pick up food after work. I feel as if I called the office 3 or 4 times in just a few days while trying to get the food. Each person I spoke with was great."
